PATNA: Marriages, as goes the age-old saying, are made in heaven, solemnised on the earth but this marriage was ceremonialized on the hospital bed.
Sounds weird but a youth in Bihar married a girl on the hospital bed after he got his leg fractured in a road accident shortly before marriage.
The bizarre wedding took place in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar on Friday with the patients and their attendants as witnesses.
The marriage of Lalaji, a resident of Jamalabad, was scheduled to be performed with Seema Kumari who hails from Kudni block, on March 5.
The wedding preparations were in full swing in both the families but suddenly the would-be groom fractured his leg in the road accident on March 1 and landed on hospital.
Hearing the news, the girl with whom the marriage was to be solemnised rushed to the hospital with her family members and took care of her would-be husband.
She refused to return her home saying she would now straightway go to her husband’s home.
Eventually, all wedding arrangements were made in the hospital as the boy put vermillion mark on her head as a sign of marriage on Friday, two days before the scheduled wedding.
All the patients admitted at his wards and their attendants clapped and blessed the couple.
